The Siberian is a wonderful family pet that gets along well with children, other cats and cat friendly dogs. Hardy and healthy, this naturally intuitive cat loves being held or curling up in a lap. Siberians also are fascinated to play with running water.
The national cat of Russia, the Siberian is believed to have originated there around the year 1000. Russians who immigrated or were exiled to Siberia brought their cats with them.
